Suffer from knee or hip pain? There will be a free educational seminar to learn more about what you can do to find relief from your pain. Orthopedic surgeons Dr. Robert Belniak and Dr. Robert Carangelo will present a lecture on Thursday, Sept. 24, 6 to 8 p.m. at the Bristol Senior Center, 240 Stafford Ave., Main Dining Room.
HOCC is one of two hospitals in Central Connecticut offering MAKOplasty, a robotic assisted surgery for partial knee and total hip replacement. The surgery is so precise that people recover faster with fewer side effects and can rapidly return to a more active lifestyle. MAKOplasty® procedures use the RIO Robotic Arm Interactive Orthopedic System, enabling more accurate alignment and placement of implants.
